Market Overview

The market for cattle health is being driven by factors such as increasing R&D expenditure in the cattle health sector, rising initiatives by government, and animal welfare associations and advanced technology leading to innovations in the cattle health sector.

European countries along with the countries in the Asia Pacific are focusing more on the cattle health and implementing several initiatives for the same. For instance, in the United Kingdom, the Cattle Health and Welfare Group (CHAWG) has a crucial role in addressing relevant cattle health and welfare issues. CHAWG is responsible for planning and coordinating a program of economically-focused improvements for cattle health and welfare. CHAWG acts as the first point of call for all cattle health and welfare research, and new disease challenges. Also, countries such as the Netherlands and Germany are having private and public-private partnership insurance schemes are available for cattle, which compensate for consequential losses. In Italy, private insurance schemes are exclusively for dairy production and sheep, but participation is very limited.

Considering the Asia Pacific region, in Australia, the Animal Welfare Task Group developed animal welfare standards and guidelines for cattle and sheep. In addition, an electronic identification system has been developed for the livestock, named national livestock identification system (NLIS), in which, an animal is tagged with a radiofrequency identification device.

Owing to the rising focus on cattle health and involvement of the government, it is expected that the market for cattle health will grow in the coming future.

Key Market Trends

Vaccines are Expected Dominate the Therapeutics Segment Over the Forecast Period.

Vaccination of the beef cattle herds is designed to protect the cattle from different kinds of microorganisms, such as viruses, bacteria, and protozoans. Most of the vaccines used for cattle are injectables. However, some of the vaccines are given by intranasal or oral route.

With the right use of the vaccine, cattle’s resistance toward the disease may be increased, irrespective of the type of vaccine used. The modified live vaccines contain little amount of viruses or bacteria, which are used for the single-dose purpose and may not develop allergic reactions in the cattle.

The killed vaccines or toxoids are available for various types of disease and are likely to cause allergic reactions. The chemically altered vaccines show similar results like the modified live vaccines. The rising cattle population, increasing R&D expenditure and latest technologies are helping the vaccine segment to expand its reach. The market is inclusive of different kind of vaccines, such as vaccination for respiratory diseases, clostridial vaccines, botulism vaccine, and vaccination for diseases that cause infertility or abortion in the cattle. In addition to the above-mentioned list, vaccines are also available for some of the specific diseases, such as bovine ephemeral fever, anthrax, tick fever, etc.

The availability of such vaccines is the result of R&D efforts taken by the companies and the increasing awareness among people about cattle health.
